    My name is Max Bisantz and I am applying for the position of ghostwriter at your lifestyle blog. As lead copywriter of an e-commerce website, I understand the importance of alienating your consumer. My knowledge of SEO, metadata, and refurbished drawer-pulls enables me to pad your daddy’s offshore investments while maintaining a net worth of flax seeds. I exhibit a liberal understanding of the English language and use the following words interchangeably:

    bespoke
    artisanal
    organic
    fair trade
    I also know twelve cute ways to rock a denim romper.

    Prior to my work as a corporate bullshitter, I attended Sarah Lawrence College with a double major in Creative Writing and Taking the Time to Watch the Sun Rise. An internship with Catcher PR readied me for the global marketplace, including Ibiza, which you simply must visit this time of year. I participated in a study abroad program consisting of holistic yoga and cherishing the friendships in my life. I understand the link between gluten and childhood autism.

    Attached I have included four samples of my product copy, each representing a top-selling item for basic bitches aged 18-40.

    2. BEAR

    A mondegreen is a misinterpreted song title or lyric. An example is the mishearing of a certain hymn title as “Gladly, the Cross-Eyed Bear.” The verb bear, meaning “to carry, endure or give birth to,” comes from Old English beran, of Germanic origin, from the Indo-European root bher-. The name of the big, hairy lumbering mammal comes from Old English bera, “bear,” from Germanic *berō, meaning “the brown animal,” “bear.”
